Weekend box office news… Kris Jenner wants Blac Chyna to appear on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”… Lady Gaga turns 30… Hugh Jackman is a real hero… and Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys Join ‘The Voice’
Bad reviews didn’t keep the crowds away. “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” had a $170 million opening weekend, which is the best domestic debut in Warner Bros. history. It was also the biggest March and Easter weekend opening, and the best ever for DC Comics, Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. After three weeks in the top spot, “Zootopia” dropped to second with $23.1 million. And “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2” debuted with a strong $18.1 million, which is pretty much what it cost to make so they’re happy.
Blac Chyna has been dating Rob Kardashian for a minute and the family gives her credit for getting him out of the house and back in shape. Obviously, everything the Kardashians do has to be filmed or it didn’t happen, so Kris Jenner wants Blac Chyna to appear on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Blac Chyna thinks that’s a great idea, but she thinks they should pay her a million bucks to do it. She also wants a non-exclusive contract so she can eventually get her now reality show with Rob.
Lady Gaga turns 30 today, but Monday birthday parties kinda suck, so she celebrated Saturday night instead at the No Name Club in Hollywood. Gaga strolled in on the arm of her forever fiancé Taylor Kinney. The birthday guests included Taylor Swift, Kate Hudson, Pharrell, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, and Lisa Vanderpump.
Hugh Jackman’s rep says it looks more dramatic than it was, but Hugh’s being hailed as a hero for rescuing his son Oscar and some other swimmers caught in a riptide at Bondi Beach in Sydney. Thankfully there were plenty of people on shore with their cell phones at the ready to capture the whole thing.
Big news on “The Voice.” When Christina Aguilera rotates out for Season 11, Gwen Stefani won’t be back. Miley Cyrus is taking that spot instead. And Pharrell is taking a pass next season, as well. Alicia Keys will take his rotating seat. Meantime, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine aren’t going anywhere.
